    Dear Sachin Tendulkar,

    If You remember,

    We met on ANNUAL DAY OF KANGAROO SCHOOL ( NEAR COOPER HOSPITAL)Wherein your child was studying. I was there on the get to wel come you. We were together for 10 minutes. I gave my visiting card ( dena Bank) on back of the card, I had writen - You will hit 45 Test Centuries. You told me will call you if I get that honour.

    Now, when you crossed 45, I am most happier person than any other.
    Basically, I was fan of Sunil manohar gavasker and sent him a letter predicting that he will hit 34.........

    I wish you 51 Test centuries. Sir, do it fast and complete the GOAL before END OF JULY-2010..

    With Lots of Love ,
